Comet C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy 
Feb 11, 2015

 The tail has dimmed considerably in a visual sense, but the comet can still be seen naked eye against the faint stars of Andromeda. Star trails are much shorter now, as you can see in this image because the comets motion against the starry backdrop during the exposure has decreased markedly.
